Question: Do repost every time I find a word or words OR do I wait until the end of January to post everything I find? (Newbie)

Welcome to the challenge Shannon! You can manage the challenge however it is easiest for you. You can update your original post and repost when you finish or make a new post as you go along. I do request that you repost when you finish though - it makes it easier to recognize that you are done and it is always fun to see what others are reading! (It is where I get many of my ideas for new books!) I love seeing updates as people are reading during the month, but I find them hard to do myself, especially this time of year - I have no clue how time goes so fast!

Shannon Do the books have to be romances?

MountainKat | 20303 comments Shannon wrote: "Do the books have to be romances?"

No, It isn't required that the books are romance. Most of our challenges lean heavily that way, but it isn't required unless specified.
